asked the Secretary of State for War how many mobile guns are being stored in the open air in the neighbourhood of Bicester; what percentage of these guns are in an operational condition; and what percentage could be put into an operational condition.

Just over 800. Of these about three-quarters are awaiting disposal and one-quarter are awaiting repair. The latter equipments will not be in an operational condition until repaired, but they are being maintained in their present condition.
